Berkeley’s Marty Grimes has been working towards this moment for a long time. Hitting the road for years with childhood best friend G-Eazy, running a pizza shop since he was 15, launching a strain of marijuana, helping to pay family bills, and striving to be a role model to his five younger brothers, Marty isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. Working hard to carve out his own lane, Marty went on tour this year, opening for G-Eazy on the When It’s Dark Out Tour and the Endless Summer Tour, and on January 20th 2017, will release a 12-track mixtape, named after his own marijuana line, Martyjuana. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
In anticipation of Martyjuana, today, Marty releases “Doin Thangs,” premiered by Mass Appeal. The sanguinely woozy ode to his success highlights Marty’s relaxed confidence as he recounts how situations and people have been changing from him doin’ thangs.
Armed with a distinctive flow, tireless work ethic, and an entrepreneurial spirit, Marty’s drive and ingenuity has been catching attention. Racking up nearly 23k follower on Twitter, 27K followers on Soundcloud, and an impressive 10m+ streams on his “The Famm” single, Marty was recently invited to open for Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Migos, Boosie Badazz, and Juvenile at Oakland’s Oracle Arena.
A bonafide hustler, Marty worked his way up to beginning to own his own pizzeria, the #1 Zagat ratedGioia Pizzeria in Berkeley. Embracing his day job, he created a popular pizza-themed line of merch, available at his online store. Marty also launched a custom line of marijuana called Martyjuana, which is available at the esteemed LA-based cannabis club, Buds and Roses. His first strain, Berkeley Honey, sold out, but he is releasing another more strain: OG Grimes. Music. Pizza. Weed; Marty Grimes has proven himself to be the ultimate lifestyle rapper.
